The 2024 general elections will place Ghana at a historic crossroads from where our nation must decide between doing the same things and expecting different results, or investing in our youth to propel use into a bright future. As high as 61.3% of Ghana’s population is under the age of 30years. And anyone who does not have a plan to empower this vital resource with a solid education, pragmatic mindset, and a fair chance at a meaningful future should not have the audacity to seek their mandate to lead them.
Youth unemployment continues to pose a serious challenge for the country, creating conditions for violent crimes and conflicts threatening our national security. The need to avert such a situation requires the leadership of someone the youth have confidence in and can trust. Ken Agyapong has been a lifelong champion of the youth and the confidence they reposed in him is not in doubt. He recognises and understands that Ghana’s youth hold the key to unlocking the nation’s truest potential. That is why he says “Ghana cannot succeed until she prepares her youth to succeed.
Consequently, Straight-talking Ken (STK) is committed to prioritising the development of the youth with an agenda that involves access to more jobs, high wages, and support for entrepreneurs, including access to financing. Ken’s message for the youth is one of hope, encouragement, inspiration, attributes embodying his journey from humble beginnings to successful entrepreneurship. Ken will stem the brain drain currently impacting our country by creating a conducive environment for the best and brightest to stay and build our country.
Whether as a speaker at youth conferences, a mentor to his young staff, or a fervent advocate for youth opportunities, Ken’s pragmatic insights set him apart from all others seeking to lead our country. Ken’s desire to lead is inspired by the desire to put the energies of the youth to productive use, and his job creation initiatives hinge on a massive industrialisation drive to reduce poverty and unemployment.
The vision of Ken for the youth is best encapsulated in the wisdom of America’s 32nd President Frank D Roosevelt who noted that “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can always build our youth for the future”.
In Ken Agyapong, Ghana’s youth sees a committed champion of their cause, making him the natural choice to lead our dear nation at this historic crossroads.
